In my state you cannot even vote with a Felony conviction, yet this guy thinks he is so above the law that he can continue to serve in the Senate. I don't think so! If the GOP leadership allows this they will be in even further disgrace than they are now, and with good reason.

Leave the poor guy alone. He's just like Robert Byrd of West Virgina, AKA "Big Daddy". They represent the ultimate in Power, Corruption and politics.

It is unbelievable, the amount and quantity of abuse, that elected officials from Alaska continue to demonstrate. Once they are given power they just seem to think they can do anything they want, are all politicans in Alaska drunk with power? Troopergate, bridge to nowhere, paying for children's trips,$250,000 in home renovations...these account for only a couple of months of abuse. What would happen if we really looked into their activities. This guy should be permanently barred from ever holding a public office again. In my state he would not even be allowed to vote.

Is everyone in Alaska corrupt and dishonest? What is the problem in Alaska? Is it because they're so far away that they aren't supervised often?
Is it the drinking water? I just read the other day that there aren't any sewers up there. Hmmm just might be the cause....every person in question, is saying they aren't guilty

I can not believe this stuff. The fact that he is still even allowed to be a part of the election makes me sick. Is everyone in Alaska crazy for still voting for this criminal??????

Hmmm...maybe Palin as Governor is not so surprising anymore. What does it say about a state that elects a convicted felon?

The Pig won't need lipstick - the goose being
cooked so to speak. hard to believe felon Steven's
being elected. Desperate people needing more sun light is the problem I suspect.

Whoopie Goldberg's demeaning of someone
Obama has to deal with, is so ignorant
that it bears mentioning. Such distorting
of an Iranian name ill serves the race of
people whom Prez Obama hopes to elevate and
Americans in general.

Sarah Palin whom I was angered by as she
spouted having been pushed into the breach
for Johnny McSame. Poor thing is now being mightily trashed by both sides.
How cruel as she heads back with her family
to that frozen tundra that is Alaska. The
real evil was that of her being placeed over
her head by erratic Joe the Plumber's man

well this certainly explains how Palin became governor, there is no rhyme or reason in Alaska. gives "brain freeze" a whole new meaning!

Why does it take Alaska 15 days to count 50,000 ballots, when they counted, 4 times that many in one day on Nov 4th. Are all Alaskans as dumb as Palin?

Maybe they are too busy wathcing for Russians to determine who there Senator is to be. It is bad enough that this election could even be close with a 7 count Felon running, but not be able to even count this small amount of votes within 2 weeks really takes the cake. Alaska you really suck!

What I don't understand is why he hasn't been sentenced. I understand you can be out on bail until your court date, but that doesn't work after you've been convicted, does it? Aren't felony appeals done after sentencing? Is there a reason why he's not running his campaign from a jail cell? Or is he?

I guess you get so used to seeing felons serve hard time and the due process that's involved
